PRESS RELEASE
21-Nov-2016

We are pleased to announce that the MB Ai Supercomputer™ is currently being installed at MB Group.

The MB Ai Supercomputer™ utilises the best technology to achieve:

  • Petaflop-class processing speed, with over 600,000 cores concentrated in over 300 computational nodes [once fully commissioned, it will have over 2 million cores]

  • Top-tier power efficiency with 24 Gflops (FP32) per Watt for ultra green supercomputing

  • Petabyte-class storage, with over 250 Gigabytes per second file system bandwidth [once fully commissioned, it will have over 1 Terabyte per second file system bandwidth]

  • File system with over 20 million Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) [once fully commissioned, it will be capable of achieving over 100 million IOPS]

Dr. Mamdouh Barakat, founder and Managing Director of MB Group, says "It has been a very challenging task to get this far. It is very exciting because it opens the doors for MB Group to develop supercomputer-backed Ai and 'Big Data Analytics' applications powered by the Financial Technology (FinTech) expertise of MB Risk Management (MBRM). This gives MB Group a competitive advantage which can be applied to a wide range of industries. Furthermore, the MB Ai Supercomputer™ is being expanded constantly, incorporating the latest technology whenever practical."

Dr. Mamdouh Barakat was educated at Brighton College and was honoured with the accolade, Old Brightonian of the Month (March 2014) [PDF version]. He went on to the London School of Economics (LSE) where he received his BSc (1st class honours) in Management Sciences, MSc (distinction) in Operational Research and PhD in the field of Artificial Intelligence in Simulation Modelling.

In 1988 he founded his firm MBRM - MB Risk Management who are pioneers of the financial add-in and toolkit market segments and have been continuously providing leading edge analytical solutions.
